People do seem to get worked up real easy when discussing the GD. I'm on your side about 1973; there's just not enough edge(or energy) that year, although I'm not denying that the music was good, just not my preferred listening. As I commented the other day I feel the same about 1976. It's just too slow for me, although there are always shows in those years that I do like a lot (11-11-73 or 10-15-76). Today I'm listening to a show you may have attended, 9-28-75. Grendel does not show any love in his review and yet I like it better than OFTV.

BTW, I'm not looking for a copy of the commercial release unless it's permitted. In many cases there's a legal download available (such as 2-14-68) and I wasn't sure about these.
